As a REFUGEE on the BUDUBURAM REFUGEE CAMP, life is very hard.
War has adverse effects on everyone, but the people who suffer most are the women and children.
We can CHOOSE one or two options. We can give handouts for food, housing and medicine or we can give them micro loans to enable them to do small business on the camp. We have over 50 single mothers who are all part of the Provision of Hope Prayer Group. They gather every single Saturdayto worship and to pray. What a powerful group of women!! Presently we are at No. 15 on the empowerment list. Our goal is to empower each one.
When these mothers can provide for their own needs, it gives them self worth and confidence.
“I feel like I am somebody, with meaning and purpose to my life” “ I can feed my children and that makes me very happy” These women have come alive with HOPE and a FUTURE.
Our Vision is to pray together, to seek the face of the Lord together, then follow His commands.
We will empower women both spiritually and physically enabling them to provide for their own family needs, then go beyond themselves to help the needy in their society.
We were just there in Ghana with these women, and we saw for ourselves what a difference this is making. Many times they go to bed hungry, or their children are sick with no medical help. We also know that handouts are not the solution to their poverty.
MICRO LOANS ARE BETTER THAN HANDOUTS!
